This is old news but I am heavily involved in adoption issues and the rights of birthmothers on a daily basis and with Woody Allen back in the news with his latest movie I just had to rant. And yes I am a Christian and before you flame me I will just remind you that 'Christian’s are sinners too" Yes I am wrong for feeling like this but I haven’t jumped the hurdle yet.
Mia Farrow and Woody Allen were lovers for over ten years. They never married, but they were as close to being married as you can get. She bore him a natural son; they adopted 10 special needs children as parents and they worked together.
Their lives unraveled when Mia discovered that Woody had been taking intimate photos of their adopted daughter, Soon-Yi. Eventually, Woody married Soon-Yi. This began when Soon-Yi was 16 and Woody was her father.
[bold](Now he is father and husband!?)[/bold] Isn’t this technically incest?
I am well aware that Soon-Yi was adopted prior to Mia & Woody getting into their relationship so he was not “legally” her adopted father but he assumed the “traditional roll” as father.
When taken to the courts this story of Allen’s obsession with Dylan, it found no proof he had molested Dylan, the court said he had behaved with gross inappropriateness towards her and demonstrated a complete lack of fitness as a parent.
He apparently believes his own hype that he is totally innocent and this was all the by-product of neurotic, jealous, Mia. I believe he should have been prosecuted for incest at the time. Or, at the very least, statutory rape. The man needs and deserves some time in jail. I suspect the inmates would make sure he knew what it means to be powerless and insignificant and in dire need of a sugar daddy to protect him. I believe there is a very special place in hell for men like this.
Tell me how this scum can go on to adopt a child (possibly 2) with his (adopted daughter/wife)?
Money! That is the only way he could have. Only an agency or orphanage wanting to make mega bucks would convince a judge to let a man who crossed the boundary of being a father to lover adopt more children. Did the potential birthparents not consider Allen’s track record with children? Perhaps the birthparents had no say in the home that their child was going to be placed. Someone should have looked at his background! Shame on the
agency that helped him get custody of another child. His latest adoption was a girl. Hmmmm what happens when Soon-Yi doesn’t want to come out and play does that mean daddy will go play with new baby and make her his own trophy?
While I have not seen “all his movies” I have read up on some just for the highlights of knowledge. (This was before I became active in adoption issues) His movies are sex-obsessed and neurotic. His new movie with Jason Biggs &
Christina Rici portrays a girlfriend who can only have sex with other guys. She is a total basketcase. The plot for “Manhattan” was an indication of his what he was really about, since he, as a teacher, started diddling with an underage student Others, such as Crimes and Misdemeanors present complex moral dilemmas.
He is a sick individual and should never have had the privilege of adopting a baby.
He thinks he is neurotic now………just wait till one day the birth mother of Soon-Yi and his child comes looking for their children for a reunion. (Perhaps he is counting on them not showing up since they are foreign) He is going to have a lot to answer to!
